What It's About:
When framing houses today, the goal is to minimize thermal bridging and leave plenty of room for insulation, while still creating a strong frame that stands up to the elements and extremes. Learn how to do so during this presentation as we demonstrate and compare a standard framed wall with advanced, energy efficient framing that uses 20% less material.
What You’ll See and Learn:
- Design on 2-ft. centers, single top plate framing and two-stud corners
- Drywall clips and partition backers
- How to use engineered lumber strategically
